I'm in the process of changing a 30GB hard disk drive from a Linux-based computer system to operate with Windows.

I followed the procedures for removing the Linux partitions and formatting, but after I repartitioned the drive, reformatted it and loaded Windows, I rebooted the system and it immediately defaulted to the GRUB boot loader from the previous Linux installation.

What additional procedures must I accomplish to remove the GRUB from the drive coding so that I can use it in the Windows-based system?

You need to burn the drive to all zeros and reinstall.
